§ 44. Mr. MacKENZIE LIVINGSTONE
asked the Postmaster-General what steps are being taken by his Department towards the training of increasing numbers of wireless telegraphists?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Viscount Wolmer)
Candidates for the Post Office certificate of proficiency in wireless telegraphy, which is required by all wireless operators on British merchant ships, are trained at specially licensed schools of wireless telegraphy and are examined by the Post Office. So far as I am aware, there is no scarcity of students or of successful candidates. Operators for coast wireless stations or for other Post Office wireless services are trained by the Post Office, which has a large staff of telegraphists to draw upon.
